@Rouser Yes, really good point. If it's a matter of inter-personal skills, often doing some mock interview prep with (honest, but kind!) friends can help, but if there is discrimination at play, then I have no good answers for you. Certainly, there is a lot of bias in hiring, both active discrimination and subconscious.
@dromeda Good point that there are different types of public speaking!
@Legobrarian Yes! It's so hard to know the right amount. I can actually take no credit for the gf cookies, it's all Martha Stewart: http://www.marthastewart.com/318109/flourless-peanut-chocolate-cookies (they are amazing!)
@Vib G Yor This is a really good point! It's hard to test out what it's like to actually work in a job before you do it. I have a friend that always tries to shadow a workplace for a day before taking on a new gig.
@andnowlights Is there any way to increase the amount of time you spend on the part you like? Or a new project you can take on during the 60% of time when you're bored? Googling waffle makers and sea monkeys for pay sounds awesome!
@Punk-assBookJockey I agree! It's also hard because what we like to do changes and we grow and get older. I could have hated working with people like you're describing when I was in college, but now it sounds rewarding.
@astauff I haven't, but that sounds fun! Maybe my next job...
I love these illustrations! Lovely.
@forget it i quit what a nice way to think about it!
@ceereelyo Any tips from when you worked in retail? Sounds like you have some great experience.
